    Hello Everyone, I searched the forum and I couldn't find any threads like this. Everyone post pictures and plans of their indoor runs and cages. I need some ideas.
    thanks.

    When building an inside cage I take into consideration the size of my feed bag. When it suits the purpose I build my cage the size of my feed bag and use the bag as a liner on the floor. When the floor is soiled I pop out the soiled bag and pop in a new. I have to fold a feed bag in my 1ft³ milk crates that double as nest boxes.
